    Grant another outstanding job. Once again I want to say thanks for sharing your knowledge, insight, and heart. I will pass this on in my teaching. I still have a hard time handling. Heb 8:13. I UNDERSTAND what you say but to explain this in a Baptist Sunday School class is hard to do. If you can help me a little explain this it will be a big help. I understand the word covenant was interjected by the Greek, how do I prove it. I will start teaching Heb. in Jan. and consider this one of the most important NT book. Thanks Jim Newberry

    Jim, Having been raised as a Baptist I understand the challenge of getting people to see beyond their own theological tradition. However, proving that the word ‘covenant’ has been interjected by the translators is pretty easy. In most English translations the word will be in italics, which means it does not appear in the original Greek. This is one of the many places where the translators tried to be a little too helpful and it would have been better had they simply translated the Greek literally. Let me know if I can be of further help, and I pray that your lesson is well received. Shalom, Grant L.

    Thank you for your insight… This look at balance through paradox is brilliant, and oft misunderstood. Do you offer beginning Hebrew classes?

    Thanks for your email, Ari. Yes, I will be offering a Hebrew class in Tallmadge, Ohio on April 17-18-19. It will be about an hour long each of those three nights. I have a method for teaching the Hebrew alphabet, vowels, etc. very quickly, and students will be able to read the first six verses of Genesis (with comprehension) by the end of the third session. I know, it sounds impossible, but it works! Can you join us?

    Hallo from Pretoria,SA
    Tks for all you teaching and patience in the way you teach. Do you have considered a online Hebrew class. Please let me know.

    Hello, Chrisi! Please forgive the late reply to your question. You asked it over a year ago and it has just now shown up at this end of things! So I’m not quite sure what is going on with WordPress (which is the program that deals with these things), but I’m glad it finally came through. Anyway, I am preparing a four-part course called “Hasty Hebrew” that I hope to have completed shortly. It will be a combination of online videos on YouTube along with a workbook that will be available on Amazon. The workbook is finished, and the video should be done soon. So, just check on YouTube to see when they are available. Shalom! Grant
